7:05 am
>> watch the backlash to be louder and more public. one republican senator said he will not support donald trump if he is the nominee. wouldn't vote for him, saying conservatives will need to find a third party option. >> peter alexander, thank you. hillary clinton enters super tuesday with momentum on her side. a strong showing today and tonight could all but end the democratic race. nbc's andrea mitchell is in miami with that part of the story. >> good morning, matt. bernie sanders is about to vote in burlington, vermont. you see a live shot of the polling place in burlington. hillary clinton is so far ahead in the biggest states voting today. she's already looking beyond bernie sanders to a general election matchup. her strategy against the most likely republican nominee, donald trump. >> republicans want to sell the same snake oil. >> reporter: today as voters head to the polls, hilary kin

7:07 am
>> america never stopped being great. we have to make america whole. >> the clintons think their best case against trump is to point to his controversial remarks and portray him as a bigot. clinton has called for love and kindness and telling crowds, instead of building walls, we need to tear down barriers. they have no illusions of how tough it'll be if they run against this unconventional republican candidate. >> andrea, thank you very much. we'll turn to chuck todd, nbc's political director and moderator of "meet the press." >> good morning. >> i've seen the polls you've seen. take me through what you expect trump's night to look like. >> it is possible that trump wins every single primary and caucus tonight other than texas. he could win every one by five or more points. >> we wake up tomorrow, show me what you think things could look like in terms of the delegate count. >> this is a conservative
7:08 am
he has a 60 delegate lead. he could build well over a 100 delegate lead. this is a conservative estimate. if he's closer to 40% in all the polls, this number could be well over 300. what we don't know is who is going to be in second. this will matter tonight. >> a lot of attention on marco rubio. what could happen with him tonight? will he win any contests at all? you think trump will win most. >> i think we're going to be 0 for 16 for marco rubio. what they will say is a good night is if he's in a close second in virginia. if he can beat cruz here. maybe pull a surprise up there in minnesota. that's what he's hoping to do. >> you talk about these two states. they play prominently in the strot strategy of ted cruz. but you add this state, as well. >> ted cruz has been spending all his time in texas. if he loses texas tonight, he really has no way to go. he'd like to pull off not just arkansas.
7:09 am
he's been spending a lot of money. he hopes to win in alaska. if he can win more than one state, it's a big deal for him. then good-bye, marco. >> hillary clinton coming off a huge win in saturday in south carolina. what's the map look like for her tonight? >> pretty much a dominant here in the south. i think the question is going to be, does she pull off a minnesota? does she pull off a massachusetts? i say that if she does that, they're knockout blows to bernie sanders. sanders is targeting the states with the least diverse electorate. three up here plus oklahoma and the colorado caucuses. if she can sweep the south and win one or two of these, bernie sanders has a problem. >> this leads us back to the desk. nicolle wallace is joining savannah savannah. >> for the republican party, for years, there was always the talk about, there are fissures in the republican party between movement conservatives and the establishment. now it's a gaping crack. what happens? what happens to the republican
7:10 am
and he's the nominee? >> in 2012, the rules changed about how you get delegates, to make it easier for an establishment front runner to seal up the nomination. >> excellent. good job. >> right? well done. there's a reason the country establishment. trump has this locked up at this point because of the rules put in place in 2012. >> irony alert. >> right. >> what is the reality of a third-party candidate? not talking about trump, but an actual republican who might say, i can put the party back together? >> you can't find an operative in washington who doesn't have their own scenario. it's mitt romney. it's rick perry. constitution party. it's -- maybe they can comen n commandeer the libertarian vote.
7:11 am
to start tomorrow. michael bloomberg's people, who are seriously looking at this, they have basically said, if he doesn't make the decision to go tomorrow, as in march 2nd, you can't get on the ballot in the state of texas. if all these people want to do this, they have to start now. they can't wait another two weeks. >> take us inside your watching party. what state will you be watching closely tonight? >> i'll be sober because i'll be here. you can't find a clear headed republican who says there is a realistic third-party scenario. they are moving from sort of depression to acceptance on the reality of trump is our party's standard bearer. i think that i am watching for this turn toward acceptance. trump is going to have a huge night. trump is all but certainly the republican nominee. i think what you hear republicans say privately is that they were able, a couple weeks ago, to imagine the scenario where he started to
7:12 am
they're alarmed that the refusal to acknowledge the news cycle cycles -- you gave him a chance to disavow david duke. it makes him run against clinton daunting. >> the clinton versus trump race, democrats were laughing saying, if it's trump, that's great. they're not saying that again. >> they say, okay, republicans didn't go after this guy early. they know they have to engage early. here's what it means for us as a country, nasty, low, early, often. it's going to be a race to the bottom. >> by the way, roker commandeered his monitor back. >> roker. >> that was short-lived. >> i'll raise your touchscreen, buddy. >> thank you so much. stay with nbc news throughout the day and night. complete coverage of super
7:13 am
we'll be will lester holt tonight for prime time coverage p.m. eastern. i'll take a double latte, chuck. voting tonight? >> i think it could. could i get some windex? anyway, you can already see pretty good storms firing up. we're going to be looking at a very wide swath from louisville down to new orleans and mobile. 22 million people at risk. the super tuesday states, arkansas, memphis, tennessee, knoxville, birmingham, alabama, atlanta, georgia, possibilities of having severe weather later this afternoon and on into the evening hours. active weather for tennessee, arkansas, louisiana, alabama, mississippi. by this afternoon, we have storms from knoxville, nashville, down to jackson. into tonight, active from tennessee, north carolina, all the way down to the gulf coast. heavy amount of rain stretching
7:14 am
pittsburgh, guys. we are looking at a fair awe mount of rain and active weather that could affect voter turnout. >> keep us posted. >> thank you so much. the government's battle with apple over one of the san bernardino shooter's phones is center stage on capitol hill today. the head of the fbi and apple's top lawyer will appear before congress as apple celebrates a s s a ruling in a similar case. pete williams has more. good morning. >> it is apple's first court victory, with the judge ruling the government cannot force the company to open a locked iphone. the ruling came late monday from a federal judge in brooklyn over a dispute in an iphone belonging to a suspected drug dealer. this is a separate case from the tug of war over the iphone used by one of the san bernardino attackers. but the legal issues are basically the same. the judge ruled the relief the
7:15 am
because congress has considered legislation that would give the same result. phone companies allowing the government to tap into their systems when it has a search warrant. congress decided not to cover phone makers like apple and google under the law. the judge said requiring apple to bypass security mess sure asures that the company markets to its customers would be something offensive. he said it's beyond the government's power. later today, the fbi director james comey and apple's general council appear before a house committee. they both agree that this problem will get worse unless congress draws bound are i y e -- boundaries lines. >> you have the ruling in brooklyn, the san bernardino case is going forward. they're not legally bound but what is the practical effect of what happened in brooklyn on the san bernardino case? >> the legal matter is the brooklyn ruling is not binding on any other court, but it is the first decision on the issue
7:16 am
it'll be arguing in court in california later this month why it should not have to help the fbi open that san bernardino phone, savannah. >> pete williams in washington, thank you. turn to california now where the search is on for a kidnapping suspect who escaped overnight after a bizarre police chase and standoff. nbc's steve patterson is in los angeles. >> police with the california highway patrol say this guy is still out there, escaping after an hour's long police pursuit with an ending you have to see to believe. >> reporter: low speed, high stakes. >> all over the paint, riding the shoulder, trying to get past the traffic. >> reporter: play by play from the air, calling a dangerous game on the ground. >> he's not going to get very far. you can run but you can't hide. >> reporter: a notion the suspect would test, starting east of los angeles. police say the suspect kidnapped his girlfriend and their two

7:19 am
the pump then burst into flames. the passenger jumps out of the car and runs away, while the driver tries to free other passengers from the backseat. everyone did get out okay, but it took firefighters two hours to get the flames under control. we still don't know what caused the driver to lose control in the first place. >> lucky people. >> yeah. mr. roker has more on the weather. >> out west, we have a big storm system bringing a lot of rain to the pacific northwest. northern california and southern california. we have a slight risk of storms through the southeast. plenty of sunshine through the plains. we'll look at the winter side of the storm coming up in the next ten minutes.

7:32 am
>> good morning, matt. today, erin andrews takes the stand for a second day in a row. this will be facing cross-examination from the hotel's legal team, who must prove that, one, this video was not their fault. that it was the sole responsibility of her stalker, michael barrett. and, two, this has not irreparably damaged her career. >> reporter: this morning, erin andrews returns to the stand to face cross-examination, questions from the lawyers for fault. >> they called me and said, you're putting this man that requested to be next to you. is this okay? they could have stopped this. i'm so angry. so mad. >> reporter: in emotional testimony, andrews broke into tears numerous times on the stand as she told the jurors how the naked videos taken by michael barrett turned her life upside down.
7:33 am
naked all over the internet. i felt so ashamed. i was so embarrassed. somebody sent me a still of the video to my twitter or someone screams something from the stands and i'm back to this. >> reporter: barrett appeared in two taped depositions. andrews left the courtroom before they were shown. barrett said he snuck past a maid, sawed off the peephole to her door and took video of her naked with his cell phone. >> why did you decide to do that? >> great question. >> i'd like to hear the answer. >> i would, too. i've thought about it over and over in my mind. it was a huge, huge mistake in judgment. >> reporter: he says he feels horrible. >> i knew what i was doing was wrong. i knew it was a horrible thing. for her sake, and my sake, i knew that soon enough i'd be in huge trouble.
7:34 am
the pain can't be undone. >> the hue miliation continues. the things that woman has had to hear breaks my heart. >> reporter: erin says her career is damaged and her life will never be the same. >> all i wanted to do was be respected. i wanted to be the girl next door that loves sports. now i'm the girl in the hotel scandal. >> erin andrews says espn forced her to do an interview about that ordeal. one she says continues to haunt her to this day. just over an hour, she'll first take questions from her defense team and then begin the cross-examination. >> morgan radford, thank you very much. let's turn to ari, chief legal correspondent. obviously, this testimony from andrews was powerful, emotional, wrenching. how does erin andrews overcome what the hotel is likely to say, which is, hey, it's awful what happened to you, but we have a bad actor who lied and deceived
7:35 am
to you. it's not our fault. >> the plaintiff's argument, they're going to make the case there were two groups at fault. obviously, the stalker who did this terrible, gross thing, but also a hotel that had the duty to its customers, that relates to this harm and personal security and safety, and they fell down on the job. >> the stalker, michael barrett, was not in the courtroom. this was taped testimony. a taped deposition that was played in court. erin andrews left while it was being played. did he say anything when he took the jurors through exactly how he accomplished this that, in your opinion, really hurts the hotel? >> what hurts the hotel is the idea that basically, this information was easy for someone to get and provided in a way that didn't give her any warning. i think that came through loud and clear. there's plenty of people who are going to say, well, okay, but the hotel didn't do anything explicitly wrong. it didn't try to hurt her but, yet, it was clear that this guy,
7:36 am
sophisticated or well-trained, he's not a security expert, was able to do this relatively easily. it's scary. >> meanwhile, you have her on the stand so emotionally. sympathetic, likely, to the jurors watching it. if you're the defense lawyer, it's your turn to cross-examine her today, what is your approach? >> to minimize the damages. not to say this wasn't terrible. it was heart wrenching to watch. her life and career was affected. she talked about watching this tape with the fbi and she vomited uncontrollably. that's how much she was shook. the only thing you do from the other side, the other lawyers say, look, $75 million is a lot of money. wrongful death suits pay out $3 million to $5 million. otherwise, i think people >> thank you so much. let's get a check of the weather from mr. roker. >> thanks so much. we have the severe weather to talk about, but there is a winter side to this storm.

7:44 am
the size of a phone booth. >> reporter: along the way, he's captured and tweeted breath-taking images of sunrising, massive weather systems, melting icecaps and a space suit selfie. he's also been the ideal test subject to evaluate the physical and emotional effects on long-duration space flight. because on the ground in tuscan is scott's twin brother mark, husband of gabby giffords. as a near genetic duplicate, researchers have been comparing scott to mark, critical if astronauts are ever going to mars. and twins will be twins. it was mark who sent a gorilla suit into space for scott to terrorize other astronauts. but the science is serious stuff. >> they had an opportunity they've never had before. my brother and i are the only
7:45 am
have ever flown in space. the fact we're twins gave them this unique opportunity to do some pretty substantial science. >> cover of "time" magazine. >> reporter: at his home in houston weeks before his mission began last year, i asked scott what he'd miss most. >> are you going to miss tacos? are you going to miss pizza? watering the lawn? what will you miss? >> i think what most people miss, what i missed last time, are the people that are important in your life. the relationships you have with people on the ground. >> reporter: from space, he says, that's still true. >> there's certainly, you know, a loss of connection with folks on the ground that you care for and love and want to spend time with. >> reporter: still, after nearly 144 million miles, he says he's not climbing the walls. >> i could go another 100 days. i could go another year if i had to. >> reporter: no need. after 11 months in space, late tonight, scott kelly will
7:46 am
>> he'll get a very thorough medical exam. researchers say in the absence of gravity, bones become brittle, fluids move upwards and sometimes vision is affected, shifting toward farsightedness, something scott kelly said he's already experienced. when you add up his missions over the years, he'll have set the american record. 520 days in space. >> tom costello, thank you very much. we all remember the images of the astronauts getting off a capsule after three weeks and they were wobbly. >> i wonder how he'll feel. he'll be like, what'd i miss? carson, what did he miss? >> donald trump, what's going on here? hey, guys. this is social media, and scott kelly has been able to give us all a glimpse into what it's been like to be in space for a year. the sunrise pictures, all the cities lit up at night. we followed along with him as he celebrated holidays. this came from easter.
7:47 am
with a christmas tree. thanksgiving, his twin brother mark posted this. scott, gabby and i missed you at thanksgiving dinner. a big feast, rubbing it in. scott replied, not quite the same. over the months, we saw him take these wilted flowers and would send pictures of progress there. brought them back to life. beautiful shots there. scott's tweet as he prepared last night. earth, i'm coming for you tomorrow. good night from the space station. we look forward to a safe return for him tonight. >> big sacrifice, great service. carson, thank you. coming up, wow, chris jend kris jenner

8:17 am
>> good to see you, gang. the more i thought about it, the more i realized that this all began on one of the worst days in american history. >> reporter: this all started on 9/11 when america became a different country. a surprise attack that shattered our sense of security. >> america has been attacked, and it has been changed. >> reporter: the war against iraq went disastrously wrong. no weapons of mass destruction. the hussein army became part of isis, while american forces paid a heavy price. at home, banks and wall street grew america into a great recession, with a housing scam. now an oscar winning film "the big short." >> fraud never, ever worked. eventually, things go south. when the hell did we forget all that? >> reporter: wall street was bailed out, but the working and middle classes lost jobs and confidence in government.
8:18 am
supposed to. just because they're not doing what they're supposed to do, it leaves me almost homeless. >> reporter: president obama promised change, but he initiated a blue state agenda. health care overhaul. same-sex marriage and met gop opposition. >> you lie! >> reporter: congressional republicans were not interested in negotiation or compromise. they had their own problems with the tea party. the rich, 1% of the country, got richer. while the working and middle class were stuck in neutral or reverse. the college kids ran up big debt. the war in the middle east escalated. young american warriors, less than 1% of the population, went back again and again. >> we have at least 20 victims. >> reporter: then terrorism came home. this time in california.
8:19 am
cities, police race became a broken. >> it needs fixing. that work is underway. what goes on beneath the dome and in the rest of washington, that will take longer, and it alone. >> of course, one of the sad things about this campaign on both sides is that there is a deliberate attempt to stir the feed on itself. tom. we talk about that anger so much and have over the past six months. to go back and look at the roots of it is eye-opening. >> i really do -- i had to think about this, about 9/11 and what it did. i think it affect td country in a way we didn't appreciate at the time. it was the hyperpatriotism. instead of going together, we went in separate directions. how we get out of that, it's not going to happen in this
8:20 am
>> all of that happening in relatively short period of time, as well. >> it did. and as matt said at the beginning, there are so many good stories in the country. so many states are doing well. new hampshire and iowa, under 3% unemployment. it's inexplicable. thank you very much. >> thank you. turn now to our special series, compelling compulsions. this morning we're taking a look at hoarding. questioning how common it is. natalie is out in los angeles with more on that. good morning. >> good morning, guys. savannah, you asked how common is it? the answer may shock you. up to 5% of the population suffers from this disorder. that is a hoarder in 1 out of every 20 households. left untreated, it can become very dangerous. not only for suffererers, but also for their families and communities. >> oh, my. wow. oh, my goodness. there is not much room to move. i don't want to step on this.
8:21 am
>> watch your footing. >> reporter: this was my first time visiting the home of a hoarder. >> she sleeps in this little area right here? that's it? >> little three-foot space, maybe. >> not a lot of cooking happening here. >> no way. >> reporter: it was hard to believe someone could even live in this situation. >> can you imagine living not only in this space, but being a neighbor, or living under it? there's a lot of health and side effects that come with this. >> yes. >> other than just for the people living here. >> reporter: cory is a hoarder expert. his business has specialized in cleaning hoarder households for the last 20 years. he was hired by these homeowners, an elderly mother and her son, to help change their lives. point? >> there's always a trigger with hoarding, and it seems like post trauma, death, divorce, as simple as children moving away and going to college can create voids. they're truly filling voids. >> how do you know when you're
8:22 am
things to, i have a problem? >> the easier way we define it is when you lose functionality. there's a lot of collectors. people collect all types of things. when you lose functionality of rooms, can't sleep in your bed, can't cook at your kitchen, can't sit on the dining room table, we've lost functionality. >> you were a paramedic. that's how you initially got into this? >> having to come into homes like this to get people out or, as a firefighter, too, coming in and trying to put a fire out and trying to find someone. seeing people burn up in these homes is very common and it's sad and tragic. it's such a small place. they think they can get out. >> reporter: the homeowners gave us permission to be there, but wish to remain anonymous. they're hope is to let other hoarders know, they're not alone. judy knows this firsthand. her sparseless furnished apartment is that way intention gnatly.
8:23 am
she wrote a memory, "white walls." >> what was it like for you glow growing up in the home of a hoarder? >> i felt i was drowning in her disorder. growing up with my mother's piles of stuff, i felt locked from her, physically, but also emotionally, too. when i was very young, i have memories of, you know, i had a nightmare. it was actually hard to get to her in the night because there was so much stuff on her bed with her. >> reporter: judy's mother was a polish refugee, the daughter of a holocaust survivor. >> i do think that some of her hoarding, at least, has been in a desire to create a nest for herself, some safety. hanging on to whatever is there. >> reporter: judy brought us to montreal to meet her mom, who bravely allowed us into her home, where she clearly still
8:24 am
>> i do not know. rationally, it doesn't make any sense. you know, this place is full of junk. i know that. but from a need to control to give a reason for having spent the money, i cannot control it. >> where is the control? >> it's elusive. it's not there. there is a great fear that people will despise me and i'll be left with nothing and no family. that. >> reporter: judy's mother tried to get help but to no avail. run deep. >> maybe i can make up for the shame i've caused you all these years. i am so sorry.
8:25 am
>> as you see, it's just heartbreaking. in 2013, hoarding became a diagnosis. now people can get counseling and therapies for it, and they coverage. judy's mom did not want us to use her name but we want to thank her for being so brave to allow us in with our family rahs s -- cameras and see how this is affecting her. >> i think a lot of people will relate to that. her. >> appreciate it. we have more information on hoarding at today.com. tomorrow in our series, we'll tell you about a young man who is so obsessed with counting calories, he lost half of his body weight. that is tomorrow on "today". we'll turn the page. coming up, we have jennifer lopez and tina fey, both live in our studio. we'll catch up with them right

shortage of journalists when the war in afghanistan was being outshadowed by the war in iraq. they were like, anyone who wants to go with go. this woman thinks she's going for three months and stays for three years and kind of changes her life in the process. >> this is based on a true story. there's a book by a chicago tribune reporter, kim barker. the "new york times" review of the book says she depicts herself as a tina fey character who finds herself addicted to the adrenaline rush of war. was that a light bulb, like, i know who could play tina fey? >> it is embarrassing to say that's how i became aware of the book. then i read it afterwards and it was funny, smart and well-written. i was like, we should make this a movie. >> it's cute. what does that mean, tina fey character? >> like a slob. eats poorly and doesn't comb her hair, i think. >> it's a military setting. you're shooting guns, hanging out with soldiers. did you like that?

i got to fly in a helicopter. flew in a huey with no, you know, doors on the side. it was really cool and exciting. i fired an ak-47, which a lot of guy friends of mine was like, was that awesome? i was like, it's fine. >> i thought you caught the bug and you'd be in terminate or 4 or something like that. >> yeah. >> it's a war movie, funny but it's not a ha ha movie. >> it's a human story about people getting addicted to the adrenaline lifestyle. the journalists get there and work in intense environments all day and cut loose and party all night. it becomes a dangerous lifestyle. >> i love the title, by the way. "whiskey tango foxtrot." >> military speak for wtf. we'll stop the translation there. >> like the oscars, a scroll can come across, what it means. that describes the atmosphere there.
8:36 am
insane, chaotic atmosphere that people cope with. >> did you have fun at the oscars? >> as much fun as you can have being, like, up high and -- squ. ask. first of all, there was a nice article about your outfit. it said, tina fey literally slayed. i was like, is that what you were going for, literal slaying? and always failing. >> am i slaying now? am i slaying from this angle? but is it fun or is it like a suck in your gut night? >> it's both. it is fun. to get literally with people stepping on a suitcase, get me in that thing, but it's fun, yeah. >> we always run into each other in the gym on golden globes morning. i'm getting the doughnuts and you're in your cute outfit. >> workout with natalie and al. >> actually, that was natalie's

8:42 am
she's a bit of a bad girl who got caught with her hand in the cookie jar. >> she gets in trouble. >> yet, she's still a cop. >> yeah, she's a cop. listen, she's human first, you know what i mean? i think that's what the piece is about. the piece is about humanity. it's about, you know, human nature. how we can -- it's easy to slide down the slippery slope when you just, you know -- even with great intentions, trying to do the right thing. trying to do the right thing. >> people confronted with a choice in an instant, do they make the right choice or the wrong choice? >> they think they are. that's the crazy part. even if you know, this is pushing the lines of what is morally right or ethically right, it's still, you know, you'll make the choice if it means survival or saving your family or anything like that. >> i was reading all you have going on right now last night when i was thinking about doing this xhausted looking at it. >> this is why i'm sleepy.
8:43 am
speaking, not to put you on the couch here -- >> go ahead. >> do you fear if you slow down, the world will pass you by? >> there is a little bit of fomo, fear of missing out. i had that when i was little. do you remember moments like this when you were lying in bed and you heard the grown-ups in the next room and you wanted to be out there? you're like, what are they doing? is there a party going on? can i -- >> now you're one of the grown-ups worrying about what the people in the other room are saying. >> i love my work. i really do. i enjoy it. it fulfills me. it really is something that -- i just love creating. all of it. i did take on a lot last year, probably more than i should have. >> a lot of irons in the fire. >> but it was great opportunities that i couldn't say no to. >> and it seems when one of the irons cools, the other heats up. here, we have second season of "shades of blue" at the same time "american idol" is coming
8:44 am
